I work well with anyone who seeks therapy and is ready to work on themselves. I have worked with about every population, culture, and age group. Issues that I am best-suited to treat include a wide variety of disorders, childhood trauma, addictions, domestic violence, and parenting/bonding/interpersonal relationships.
I am certified in EMDR and expressive arts therapy. I like to offer different forms of expression to my clients in the healing arts. I also give plenty of skill-building tools and homework so clients can maximize their progress outside of the weekly sessions. I speak Spanish fluently.
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a form of psychotherapy in which the person being treated is asked to recall distressing images while generating one type of bilateral sensory input, such as side-to-side eye movements or hand tapping. It is included in several guidelines for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
My practice is unique in that, I am also an Expressive Arts Therapist. I use clay, drawing, writing, movement, dance, and sand play to access deep feelings. You will be able to see a huge life change within a few weeks when you come see me.
